Customer Question

I have a male kitten @ 5 months old. He has diarrhea. He seems to be
eating and I have seen him drinking. He is rambunctious as his two other
male siblings.
I have called local Banefield - no openings until Sunday. The local
emergency doesn't open until 6 PM.
Anything I can do to help him??
Somewhat desperate dad - Frank

Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your little kitten!!! Is he having any vomiting? if you look at his gums, are they pink and moist? If you pull up on the scruff of his neck (the skin there) and release it, does it return right away to normal, or does it take a second or two to return?
